The room was very large and nicely decorated. The restaurant only served buffet meals. The view from our deluxe sea view suite was partially obstructed by another building.
Very nice view from the room, friendly staff, very good breakfast buffet. There is a beautiful beach close by, but belongs to a different hotel (extra fee needed)
Location, the unique architecture and the peace!Also the room was excellent. Due to being built into cliff not a large area around the pool resulting in limited number of beds being available. Large amount of steps but have to accept that due to location!
The view was excellent. Make sure that you ask for a room at high floors otherwise there in no good view. Rooms were clean. Again magnificent sea view. The breakfast buffet was poor. Not enough variety, and not enough quantity. If you went there in the last 20 minutes before buffet closed, most of the trays were empty.
Cleaning services work very well, so the rooms are very clean. Also the ladies at the reception desk are friendly and helpful Nothing to do with Greek hospitality and definitely not a four star hotel (hardly a three star). Very noisy rooms (both from other rooms, road and cleaning staff), no friendly services at pool or restaurant that only serves very average buffet food.
Liked the architecture, great view, breakfast and bar, friendly staff, stylish public rooms,nice bathroom, lots of space for luggage Horrible metal bed bases that cut your legs as you brush past them. Pillows could have been softer (recommend the hotel gets down pillows?) Room was a bit soulless, could have more character. Though buffet dinner was bland and overpriced. How about some hooks to hang things.
Great design. Well run. Location. Very hard bed.
The location fantastic.The stuff very friendly & helpfull too. The breakfast was good enough.The room confortable & with great sea-view. More carefull clearing the bathroom.Satelite-tv with only 3or 4 international channels should not be called satelite-tv at all. The internet server was out of order at least for a week.(Unacceptable for a 4-star hotel). The time schedule of the pool should not be ending at 18.30. It is too early.
Our room had great view.It was comfortable,relaxing and simple without unnecessary luxury.The stuff was helpful and friendly without being too formal and overly polite.The dinner was good and you can enjoy it around the pool in a relaxing atmosphere.Many beaches are close to the hotel.
The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the staff extremely polite and helpful.Ideal for relaxation, away from crowds and noise.
Very hospitable, family run taverna, 10 minutes walk from lovely safe beach at Troulos. Picturesque views from balcony, across the valley. Good bus route right outside for travel into Skiathos or to other beaches between Skaithos and Koukounaries. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Drains back up if bathroom sink filled and then emptied. Minor problem for me but could be a problem with children.
The owners and staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The room was spacious, clean and with an amazing balcony and stunning view. Also despite us getting in late PM the kitchen/Taverna stayed open and produced the most tasty meal.
The staff were extremely accomodating
Olga from the reception, she was so genuine kind and service minded!
Very polite and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
The staff and service in the main were excellent. Little things, e.g. towels put out by the pool, were done well. Nothing was really too much trouble The music from the poolside bar, especially after midnight, became very annoying
Great hotel, amazing location in Skiathos town but quiet. Comfortable and spacious rooms. And beds are great! The hotel restaurant is one of the best we've ever tried. The quality and choice of food is excellent(even fresh fish), service and atmosphere by the pool are superb. We come to Skiathos every year and La Piscine is definitely the best hotel we stayed by far.
I loved staying at La Piscine art Hotel. It has the perfect location in town. Not to far from the centre and close to all bars! I ate at the the hotels restaurant and the food was amazing! The fish was fresh and the service very professional. Plus the atmosphere around the pool with candles was very serene. I definitely recommend that you try the restaurant. The rooms are clean and all the staff very friendly, warm and welcoming.
location close to the town center but not exactly in the center is a perfect compromise through amenities,useful tips and relax.
Very friendly staff, convenient location. Breakfast was below average, need to notify reception if you want your aircondition switched on as there is no control from the room. Also carpets in main reception need changing as they are dusty and they smell.
A relaxed place with helpful staff
The location was good, near to the beach and old port area and also on the bus route. The beds weree a little too hard for me.
It was a nice hotel. Our room had a quite big balcony which was nice. The only thing that was a bit annoying was that they only had one key for the entire room.
Good location - 10mins walk from Skiathos town, and 2mins to Megli Ammos beach. Room clean, air-cond effective. Quite Basic, no lift, few English tv channels,courtesy shower room was a mosquito breeding ground.
Easy to find and the proximity to the city of skiathos,to the very nice nearby beach of megali ammos and to the superbe taverna named"thessaloniki".the nice view from the balcony.good value for the money we payed. A room at the last floor(third)was given to us.except from climbing so many stairs to reach it, it was unbelievably hot inside, the air- condition didnt work properly and so much time was needed to cool it.i guess in lower floors the problem of heat may not be such a big issue.also there are no double beds in the hotel as I was told and breakfast was poor and basic.
It's in the middle of the Skiathos town. Breakfast was every day the same.
The hotel location, room, facilities, the hotel owners and all staff were 1st class and enabled us to have a wonderful relaxing holiday. Only that we were unable to stay longer than 2 weeks and are unfortunately unable to return until next year!
A quiet location with nice courtyard having a large pool and great breakfast at the poolside. The rooms were clean and bathroom was spacious. The staff were very friendly. Not easy access with a hire care and its a bit of a walk from the ferry (but the walk is flat and so not really a problem)
Friendly ,stress free
discreetly managed no
The lovely bar and the decor
The hotel is comfortable, clean, well serviced. The location is superb.
spacious room and good location no
Friendly staff and an excellent location in the centre of Skiathos Town but it still managed to feel like it wasn't in town as it was quiet. the breakfast fare was of good quality but was repetitive.
The Bourtzi was a great hotel. In fact everything about it ticked all the boxes for us. From location,cleanliness,breakfasts and most inportant the staff. They were loverly people. would hope to ga again. No
The staff were brilliant - very friendly personal service. Very helpful - though sometimes a bit slow at seeing that we were trying to get their attentionby the pool but it didn't matter - the rooms was very nicely appointed. We were sad to leave as we had had a delightful sejour there. The first room we were shown had a roof which if one was sitting on the balcony obscured the view of the sea - we paid 50€ per day extra to get a better view - the room had a jacuzzi so we did get something extra
The terrace area is exceptionally beautiful and the service from the family run hotel was very personal. The food is also good. There is no air con until July. Should have a supplement. Walk to main road is too long/steep given hot climate so need to use use hotel bus/ jeep or taxi.
i like hotel staff something was smelling like sheet everywhere in the hotel.terrible!!
The hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. Location is great and view is beautiful. Hotel is not luxurious nor modern, but absolulutely clean and very comfortable. Though breakfast was very complete and tasty, pool bar snacks were less than great (toast and coffee not good).
Liked the location and the friendliness of the staff. The bus that runs 6 times a day is a fantastic service. Enjoyed the pool area.
No Elevator and too many steps to go up with luggage to the rooms.
nothing decor very old fashioned and in need of updating. bed the most uncomfortable I have ever known. Staff were not helpful or pleasent
The family that run the hotel are very attentive to the needs of their guests and quick to respond. The hotel is very peaceful and clean. No
The peace and tranquility of the countryside, but with a shuttle bus to beach and town if you wanted hussle and bussle. Lovely pool and good food at reasonable prices Bedrooms could do with an update in decor. Lots of steps, not a good idea for those who battle with steps.
Nice location, beautiful view of the sea, spacious room. Staff are generally helpful and polite. The water used for the garden each afternoon stinks so badly it's impossible to sit at the balcony of your room for 2-3 hours every day. The air-conditioning system is archaic and noisy. You would expect someone from the hotel to pick you up on your arrival and not have to get a taxi.
The swimming pool was ok and the entrance lobby not bad. 1. Location: Only accessible by car, and not possible to walk to the beach or anywhere else due to the very steep road. 2. Very unfriendly and hostile staff(mostly family members:father,mother and two sons). Always missed excursions due to wrong information given to us. 3. Shuttle Bus not very frequent, so had to use Taxis most of the time.4. Sheets not clean and towels were collected from the floor and put again on the rack(even still wet!) for the next day.
Our hosts are charming.
I liked the owners who were helpful and met me from the Airport and took me back when I flew home. I loved my room with a view and the fact that it had a balcony
Mostly beach food and quite nights out The steps were. Very scary do not recommend heals!
The owner was very kind and helpful The shower lacks a tent
The extreme kindness and helpfulness of the owners, Babis and his wife. No complains of any kind. We shall certainly stay there again in the future.
The pension is located in an excellent position, in a quiet area only one minute walking from the main streets. The view from the room is breathtaking. Yota and her husband were extremely helpful and always went out of their way. I would definitely come back to this place and highly recommend it.
i received an e mail from fhe owner a few days prir to my arrival offering me to pick me up for free upon my arrival on the island, but there was not one there to pick me up, i had to find a phone, the pancion (hotel) is almost impossible to find on your own. the room was ok confortable bed, beautifull view, friendly owners, a bit noisy with noise from other clients coming in late, but for the money i recommend it no problem... i give it a 6 plus i would go back... i even stayed an extra night
Tha owners were attentive and helpful. The room was comfortable and the price appropriate. The views were fantastic. There was nothing to complain about!
Staff is excellent. Very friendly and very helpful. The room is clean. the view is fantastic. Excellent option for a low budget hotel. Definitely recommend it.
The guys were excellent..Excellent chioce!
The location and the lovely view. The room was very comfortable and clean, the hotel staff polite and helpful when asked for aditional infornation about our stay in Skiathos. I would definitly recommend it!
Ok hotel, fantastic view! Although it needs some improvement works, some areas/facilities seem worn out and old.... Far from either the city and the major beach (it's right hlafway from both). Can only be reached by taxi or own car, busses are always full when passing in front of Canapitsa so it's impossible to use public transportation. Not real value for money....
cape kanapitsa its a great hotel is situated at the beautiful beach of kanapitsa and has an amazing view from all over the rooms of the hotel. we asked for an upgrate at the room because we loved the hotel and we took the suite. its ideal for a young couple like us, we couldnt go out from the room the view was stunning , the decoration, everything. the breakfast was good and the view from the pool was beautiful....i would recomend it for sure!!!!nice staff too! keep up the good work
5 star view did not have twin rooms, only 2 single single beds pushed together, had to rearrange furniture. Air conditioning right above bed very unhealthy, woke up with sore throat every morning
Spectacular views of the sea, mountains and beach from the rooms and pool side.
View from Pool Deck and Breakfast around pool deck. Was promised wireless internet access in room - there was no wireless and no wired access in my room. Room quality was very poor and does not look like anything in photos. Disappointed with expectations - should not list promise things if hotel not deliver all !!!
Great location, overlooking beach with good facilities on beach. Very helpful staff with all furnishings to a high standard Very quiet during the evening with no atmosphere around the bar areas - this impacted by close proximity to Skiathos town.
We enjoyed the location of the hotel, its facilities. Hotel staff was also very friendly. We hope to come back someday. Thank you!
Lovely pool and pool bar. Nice private beach. Good breakfast buffet. Hotel spotlessly clean. easy access to Skiathos town. Had dinner in hotel on first night and meal was not that nice.
The breakfast in the morning was of very good quality with a lot of selection. The price per night did not represent the overall services it was providing
The surrounding scenery was excellent. The hotel's gardens were artistically designed. The breakfast buffet had everything I expected. Even though the room was spacious, there was no bathtub but a small shower.
don't give the same breakfast every day.
The view is excellent and in front of the beach. Ideal for families. The kindergarden is in the basement next to the toilletes and therefore it is moisty.
great staff, especially at the reception and at the pool bar,perfect location, close to the city of Skiathos,confortable rooms 1/very poor breakfast for the 5 stars hotel, every morning the same 2/ first 3 days of our stay the beach was not clean 3/too many people and not enough umbrellas
The staff treated us more like friends than guests. A lovely small hotel in a good location.
Friendly staff clean rooms, fantastic views and location Pool bar was not open but was due to open soon
We enjoyed very pleasant atmosphere of the family hotel Magic. Also the island of Skiathos is beautiful. It is a real Paradise with many wonderfull beaches, crystal pure water in the sea and azzure blue sky all the time.
Fantastic views, perfect location,outstanding rooms, friendly staff, lovely restaurant, great breakfast selection perfect holiday
Our delux comfy room with 4 poster bed was lovely with balcony with great view of the sea. Having breakfast with a panaramic view was an added bonus! Fresh fruit juice and more fresh fruit rather than tinned & melon would have improved the breakfast! Its just a shame the beach is on the other side of the main road but the views are stunning! A solution could be to get an area on the beach for your own sunbeds?!! Would like to see the communal corridors and external stairs cleaned more often.
Everything was very nice. Food was good staff were excellent. View from balcony amazing. Only real disappointment was the at the rooms were small, given the price we paid. We were annoyed that having booked and paid for a triple room it turned out to be a small standard twin room with an extra bed shoved in with no room between any of the beds-uncomfortably tight accomodation. Also the air conditioning was too loud.
The staff at reception were so welcoming and the dudes looking after us at breakfast were cool. Only a short walk to a very relaxing beach. The room was excellent with an awesome view over the bay.
Wonderfull view, friendly and helpfulll staff, excellent breakfast
location,clean,friendly staff couldn't do enough for us.would go back anytime. breakfast was ok but not enough choice of hot food.
The quiet and location of the allocated room within the hotel. The friendliness and genuine warmth of the staff. restaurant food very good. The music played around the pool area could become tiresome and occasionally noisy or inappropriate to the type of guest - not everyone likes constant music. Considering the amount of fruit grown on Skiathos, the daily melon and tinned fruit for breakfast should perhaps be improved upon.
The layout. with the proximity of all amenities ( pool, beach, restaurants). It is close to the town and the fact that children can have fun in a secure and safe environment.
the beach, the restaurant ath the beach, the pool area anyone can go to the beach ... the beach is not protetcted to be only for the hotel guests.
Reception staff on arrival very good- showed us to room. Room clean and everything available. Well cleaned and excellent bathroom. We ate twice in the hotel restaurant in the evening- first time Asian food- not very good- food was quite cold when served. Second time tried South American- average food- not as good as we would expect. We would recommend more high quality Greek food.
the spa was surprisingly good. proximity to the beach was outstanding. staff were incredibly friendly. gym facilites were poor, but good as far as island offerings go.
The service is good
There is an onsite beautician so if you want a manicure, pedicure or massage just to chill out you can squeeze it in before you go the beach. Staff are courteous. All the common areas of the hotel - pool, bar, lawns etc are excellently maintained. The rooms were spacious but a bit sparsely furnished for a five star hotel. Our room would have benefited from some small repairs/maintenance such as shutter handles & on windy nights the door to the room rattled. Bring your own hairdryer - the ones provided are not up to the job. Also you are paying top notch for any refreshments etc consumed on premises or at beach restaurant due to same said five stars but there are lots of other choices within walking distance so don't let this put you off.
the food was good and fresh, the position on the beach was perfect for a 5stars hotel it's impossible to believe that everytime i have had to ask for the soap when it was finished. the bathroom was really dirty even after cleaning
nice beach, nice breakfast less service as confirmed in the booking ( no satellite, no cd player, no internet access in the room ), bathroom not clean enough
location, excellent beach and pool. very laid back and good standard for a greek hotel. Friendly helpful staff and very clean. lovely lunchtime beach taverna. Food generally a good standard (but not fine dining). Good entertainment in the evening Hotel has a lot of rules which seem to be designed to make you spend more - eg if you buy a bottle of wine in the restaurant, you can take it to your room but cannot bring it back in the restaurant the following evening to finish it and you cannot take it out and finish it in the bar. Drinks in the hotel very expensive which is a shame as it means people flock out in the evening making the bar a bit lacking in atmosphere
> location is perfect, beach and view > early in the season (May), not enough personnel and not all the menu food is available. Attitude of personnel (esp beach restaurant) is not realy service oriented. Example; moving the table in the restaurant a view meters so we could sit in the sun, was too much to ask for...not a 5 star hotel service...
